This is a story I originally posted over at RD.net in September...
Well, tonight I had my first real LIDAR encounter with a LEO after I VEIL'd my HL's and Laser Shield!!!!!!!! To set the scenario, I have my STi mounted high above my RVM, plus I have NO jammer (yet). It was about 6:30 pm, and I'm driving eastbound on I-290, wife and son aboard, on my way to my son's yearly checkup. It was raining lightly at that time. Coming up on the Elmwood Avenue exit, there is a spot for emergency vehicles and cops to turn around. I look in the distance, and asked my wife if she could tell whether or not that was a cop up ahead (I had a small sty on my eyelid at the time, and it was making it hard for me to see). At this point I am doing approximately 70 MPH (speed limit is 55), and I was in the hammer lane with NO cars in front of me. Rough estimate of distance between me and the LEO is about 4/10 of a mile. Not too soon after I asked my wife that question, my STi starts alerting me to a laser hit!!!!!! It was a full out alert for about 8-9 seconds, then slowed as I approached the cop. It was a Town of Tonawanda cop running a Pro-Laser III. As I approached the LEO, I was down to about 60, and kept going. My wife, being the worry wart, said if I got pulled over for the LS it was coming out of MY pocket, with plate covers being illegal here in NY. Well, needless to say, the LEO didn't follow me. I'm not sure if he got a reading on me, but VEIL and the LS did their job!!!!!
